During the next few weeks, it is vital to not only exercise but also to eat healthy. Today we made a delicious Fish dish that is not only comfort food but also healthy.

It’s all about the garlic. Garlic Is Highly Nutritious, is low in calories and rich in vitamin C, vitamin B6 and manganese. It also contains trace amounts of various other nutrients.

Cooking for some can occasionally feel like a chore. In each recipe we will share our tips with you on how to make cooking more fun. At work and at home we always have a key ingredient to get us ready and that is, feel good music! Put on your favourite play list, crank up the music and move to the groove.

Let’s dive in. 

Put your root vegetables in the oven first as they take longer to cook. Starchier or harder vegetables like squash, roots, and onions take about 45 minutes to fully roast, whereas mushrooms and softer vegetables should take about 20 minutes.

If you’re cooking both, begin with the veggies that take longer to cook. After 20 minutes, add the rest and continue cooking 20 more minutes. Make sure to add a drizzle of olive oil and salt and pepper to season as desired.

For even browning, flip vegetables halfway through cook time. Fancy a bit of heat? Why not add some chopped chilly to your dish?

Fresh Haddock fillets

Start with pouring a bit of olive oil into a shallow dish and add your desired spices, seasonings and fresh garlic. Brush both sides of the haddock fillets with the seasoned oil. This helps prevent the fish from breaking as you season it.

Coat the inside of your roasting tray with a bit of olive oil. This will prevent the haddock from sticking during the grilling process.

Place the seasoned haddock fillets in the oven and grill for around four minutes per side, depending on size. The fish is cooked when the flesh is white and opaque and flakes easily with a fork.

Serve with your favourite vegetables or salad. We recommend roasting your vegetables for this delicious dish.

For the sauce we kept it simple and made a garlic and lemon butter. Slowly heat your butter until melted, add required amount of garlic and freshly squeezed lemon. Mix and if desired add a dash of cream.  Once mixed take off the heat and pour over the cooked fish.

Bon appetit, easy and healthy. We will leave quantities up to you to decide on. Enjoy discovering your favourite combinations.
